i was just wondering if the method abt reversing string using string buffer's reverse method on pg 366 of her book , the example given there
"StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer("A man a plan a canal Panama");
System.out.println(sb);//output is"amanaP lanac a nalp a nam A"
is it how it behaves or was it an error

I tried and its working normally. What i can suggest is to delete your .class file and recompile your program

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
